I asked age since what I would do depends on how far along the dog is in training. How have you taught her to heel? Food lure, toy lure, compulsion, etc?
For the first part, her not moving with you, I would work on heel starts. I will say "heel" and either toss a toy, throw a piece of food, or just take a big step with a piece of food reward. This teaches the dog to drive off the rear when they start and also teaches them that the "heel" command is fun. I also throw the release command in there as I go to reward them. I say "heel", take one step, release/throw/or reach forward with food.
